Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Master of Arts in Animation

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

Our Master of Arts degree in Animation offers three concentrations (3D Character Animation, Visual Effects, Video Games) that center around gaining hands-on skills in the chosen concentration. This major is designed for students who possess an undergraduate degree from an accredited university, college or art school who are looking to further sharpen their skills and increase their understanding of the discipline. It accepts recent undergraduates, master's level transfer students, working professionals who want to grow their animation skills, as well as people who desire a complete career change.

As a full-time student, this major is a 36-credit (one-year) degree that spans three semesters. The fall and spring semesters are attended in-residence and the summer semester is completed online. Part-time students may attend courses over multiple years until the required 36 credits are completed.

Some courses in this program require basic prerequisite skills. If students do not possess the prerequisite skills upon entry they should acquire them independently or by completing undergraduate course(s) either prior to entering the program or while in the program. A candidate for admission is encouraged to make a personal appointment with an admissions counselor in order to discuss admission eligibility, education plans and/or take a campus tour. Prospective students may also arrange a meeting with the Animation Program Director to discuss the curriculum options and tour the animation facilities.
